    Default A Fresh, Clean, and Soapy smell

    Is there a good smelling cologne that smells Fresh, Clean, and Soapy. Something that will just make me smell clean like soap rather than a cologne with a bunch of spices. I was thinking maybe Polo Sport?

    I'd say go for Prada Infusion d'Homme if you're looking for high-end, luxurious soap, or Fcuk Him if you're going for a low-end sort of "drugstore," deodorant and shower gel clean.
    I refuse to sink.

    I'm a Gendarme 20 fan. VERY clean- fresh linen kind of smell. The also make a KILLER of a bath soap too.

    "20" is lavender and may be the strongest.
    "V" is a little vetiver
    Regular Gendarme very fresh but it has worst longevity.

    I get pretty good legs out of "20" and my skin is a real scent sucker.

    Before most of the above was Canoe by Dana. Cheap, no doubt, but lasts all day, giving off beautifully soapy yet crisp sillage. I have Gendarme 20 which is a beautiful frag, but prefer Canoe.

    Agree with the Prada recs and also the Mugler.

    Another to consider is Nautica Voyage. Smells like the blue irish spring, if i recall correctly. Well, it smells like some blue bar of soap.

    I was on this quest before myself. Hands down: Prada Infusion d'Homme.

    I have Puro Lino, Gendarme, etc etc but IdH is flat out the best quality, longest lasting clean, soapy scent out there.

    I didn't find that IdH had much longevity. Am I crazy here? I loved the scent otherwise, but its poor longevity was a kicker for me.

    I agree with Prada Infusion d'Homme & Mugler Cologne..

    Both are favorites of mine

    Also you might want to try Comme Des Garcons Anbar, very fresh and clean.

    Might I also suggest Francis Kurkdjian's Cologne Pour le Matin. It's similar to Prada Infusion d'Homme but less synthetic and harsh, and less soapy (you may very well, like me, fine IdH *too* soapy)
